The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute was recently recognized as a recipient of the 2007 National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the nation’s highest honor for the extraordinary public service among libraries and museums, awarded by federal Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The award, formerly known as the National Award, it includes a $10,000 award and a shiny new medal to recognize “their extraordinary civic, educational, economic, environmental, and social contributions.”

BCRI was one of ten institutions to receive the 2007 award; nominations for the 2008 are already being accepted (they’re due in February).
